History of the Limber

On May 21, 1927, Charles A. Lindbergh completed the first solo, nonstop transatlantic flight in history, flying his Spirit of St. Louis from Long Island, New York, to Paris, France.

He toured 16 Latin American countries between December 13, 1927, and February 8, 1928. Dubbed the “Good Will Tour”, it included stops in Mexico, Guatemala, British Honduras, Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, the Canal Zone, Colombia, Venezuela, St. Thomas, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Cuba, covering 9,390 miles in just over 116 hours of flight time.

When Charles Lindbergh landed in Puerto Rico, the locals offered him a cup of frozen fruit juice. The delicious treat was named in his honor. Limbers can be found at numerous roadside fruit stands and gas stations throughout Puerto Rico.
